Team Associated B5M Buggy Build

The B5 has been one of the most exciting products from Team Associated in a long time. This buggy has been re-designed from the ground up with every part scrutinized and optimized to make it the best 2WD buggy on the planet. Instead of creating one car that can be transformed to work in mid- or rear-motor form, the engineers broke the buggies apart and released the B5 (rear-motor) and B5M (mid-motor).

We’ve got the B5M here and we’ll be going through the entire build, step by step, outlining any hidden build issues and clarifying any uncertain build steps. We’ll be using the following support gear in this build:
• Futaba S9350 Digital Servo, www.futaba-rc.com
• LRP Flow WorksTeam Brushless ESC, www.lrp-america.com
• LRP X20 8.5T Brushless Motor, www.lrp-america.com
